Winding rows of eyelets around heart shapes gave this scarf its name, and it’s well ready to keep a loved one warm in the winter. The pattern is deceptively simple, and since the repeats are long, it doesn’t take too many of them to finish the whole scarf.
Path of the Heart
Yarn: 1 ball of Paton’s Classic Wool Merino, though any worsted weight wool will do just as well.
Needles: US 8
Instructions: Cast on 30 stitches (22 pattern stitches + 4 border stitches on each side), and knit 5 rows in garter stitch. Then commence the pattern, which is stockinette-based (so purl all wrong-side rows), remembering to knit the first four and last four stitches of every row to make the border.

Knit 10 repeats of the pattern, ending on row 28, then knit five more rows of garter stitch before binding off. Block. The scarf will grow a fair amount in blocking, so don’t worry too much if it looks a little short when coming off the needles. Though if you’d prefer, adding another repeat or two of the pattern will help with that also.
